Eminem's 8 Mile Journey To Top The Film Charts.
As expected Eminem’s acting debut in the film
“8 Mile” was an instant hit with moviegoers. But few thought that the film
would do as well as it actually did, bringing in $54.5 million its opening
weekend, making it the fifth highest November opening weekend gross for
any film in history.
According to Billboard, executives at Universal
Pictures and Imagine Entertainment expect the film to open with sales in
“$35 million-to-low $40 million range”.
The film was directed by Curtis Hanson(L.A.
Confidential, Wonder Boys) and the storyline centers around a white rapper
battling against the odds to make it in the music business. The film
has received rave reviews from critics and even skeptics have given Eminem
a big “thumbs up” for his performance.
